Sicilian
Gigi's Cucina Povera is a Sicilian/Mediterranean restaurant in Buffalo, NY. In our "poor kitchen" the philosophy is simple: Make great food with fresh, local and seasonal ingredients, transforming the simple into more than the sum of its parts. Our menu includes Sicilian comfort food and peasant-style fare like pasta dishes, risotto-based dishes, seafood, and slow cooked meats. Daily specials feature fresh, local produce. Gigi's is owned and operated by Mary Ann Giordano. Chef Giordano has competed in many regional cooking competitions and has authored a cookbook, "The Saint Joseph's Day Table Cookbook," along with her father. Come and experience great food in a Sicilian country atmosphere.
